Two categories of grants amounting to €2.5k will be awarded to LUMOMAT labelled PhD students according to the criteria of excellence defined by the Research Commission and the EUR LUMOMAT Management Committee. These grants are complementary and can be combined:

1/ Scholarship at the beginning of the thesis (after the trial period): END OF APPLICATIONS ON 18/11/2022

-> Student with a Master’s degree outside LUMOMAT: as soon as the thesis starts, the academic file, the CV and a letter of motivation from the student are sent to the EUR project manager: noemie.barbot@univ-angers.fr by the student and his/her thesis director. All the applications are then sent to the Research Committee which proceeds to a ranking: the first two students ranked will receive this grant. The Management Committee will validate these grants.

-> LUMOMAT Master students: during the last semester of M2, LUMOMAT students can submit a file to the EUR project leader: noemie.barbot@univ-angers.fr. This file will be composed of the academic file (the last theoretical results according to the period), the CV and a letter of motivation of the student. On this basis, the Research Committee will proceed to a ranking and the first two M2 LUMOMAT students recruited for a thesis in a LUMOMAT partner laboratory will be eligible for a grant. The Management Committee will validate these grants.

2/ Scholarship during the thesis

-> At the end of the second year of their thesis, all LUMOMAT PhD students can put together a file before December 31, including their academic records, their CVs, their letters of motivation and their main achievements during their thesis (with communications, publications…). This file must be sent to the EUR project leader: noemie.barbot@univ-angers.fr. The Research Commission will proceed to a ranking and the two best PhD students will be awarded a grant. The Management Committee will validate these grants.
